Spot the angler

By Ffynnoncadno  
Thurne drainage mill is probably the most picturesque one on the Norfolk Broads. It was erected in 1820 on the east bank of the River Thurne by England and Co of Ludham. The mill finally ceased operation in 1936, after 116 years. The mill was derelict and in poor condition when it was purchased by Bob Morse in 1949 to prevent it being sold for scrap and destroyed. Morse turned to Albert England, a direct descendant of the England company that had built the mill, and together they restored it to full working order by 1951. They then leased the mill to the Norfolk Windmill Trust. The mill is open to visitors on specific days from spring through autumn, including the annual National Mills Weekend and Heritage Open Days.

G'day John, nice image, and yes I did spot the angler.
Thanks for the informative write up too this image, makes it more interesting to understand how it is in such fine condition, and about it's location.
There seems to be a lot of "togs" who are rather coy about their images, don't want someone else getting there to out shine them.
